  +        <p>We are pleased to announce the first HttpClient 3.0 release.
  +         HttpClient 3.0 provides a wealth of features and enhancements
  +         that did not make it into the 2.0 release, while preserving API
  +         compatibility as much as possible. In a relatively few cases

  +        </p>
  +        <p>   
  +         Noteworthy enhancements include:
  +         <ul>
  +          <li>New preference architecture</li>
  +          <li>Improved exception handling framework</li>

  +        <p>
  +         We see our fellow Apache developers as well as other open-source
  +         projects already reliant on HttpClient as the primary target
  +         audience for this release. This is the right time to evaluate
  +         HttpClient 3.0 and give us some feedback, critique or other thought on
  +         the new API.  Please feel free to file requests for additional features.
  +        </p>
  +        <p>
  +         The goal of the second ALPHA release is to incorporate the feedback, polish 
  +         the API, and update documentation. The next ALPHA release will target the
  +         wider audience beyond the Apache Jakarta and Apache WS communities.

  -        <p>The HttpClient development team is pleased to announce the final release
of
  -        <em>HttpClient 2.0</em>. Much effort has gone into the 2.0 release
and we are
  -        confident that it is ready for the 2.0 final designation.</p>
  -
  -	<p>From this point forward only bugs fixes will be added to the 2.0 branch.  Efforts

  -		will now be focused on the next major HttpClient release.</p>
  -
  -	<p>The next version of <em>HttpClient</em> is going to build upon the

  -        foundation laid with <em>HttpClient 2.0</em> while addressing those
architectural 
  -        shortcomings and flaws identified in the course of 2.0 development. Several well
known 
  -        and much complained about problems cannot be resolved while maintaining complete
2.0 API 
  -        compatibility. The primary objective of the next version is to fix those design
limitations, 
  -        breaking 2.0 API compatibility where absolutely unavoidable, while preserving overall

  -        compatibility with 2.0 use patterns.</p>
  -
  -       <p>A number of enhancements have already been made to the post-2.0 codebase.
We 
  -       	already have a new preference architecture in place that will help us provide a
  -        fine-grained control over HttpClient without polluting its API with too many options.
We 
  -        have also completely reworked redirect/authentication/retry logic and can now support

  -        cross-host redirects, a much complained about limitation of <em>HttpClient
2.0</em>.</p>
  -
  -       <p>Depending upon how drastic those API changes are going to be, the next
version of 
  -         HttpClient will be designated as <tt>2.1</tt>, <tt>2.5</tt>
or <tt>3.0</tt>.
  -         The decision will be made prior to the 2.0 final release.</p>
